The idea of going to a health spa would be a real treat for many of us. It would provide the perfect chance to escape and unwind, and enjoy some time away from the everyday stresses and strains you might be feeling. You certainly wouldn’t expect to come home having slipped in a health spa, much less to end up in casualty asking for assistance for injuries you had suffered in this situation.
Fortunately, the chances of experiencing this are rare. Health spas are subject to the same laws regarding health and safety as every other business and public space in the country. Therefore, the people who own them do everything they can to make sure they are always safe and pleasant to use.
How do slips occur in the first place?
These can often happen because part of the floor is wet. Perhaps it has been recently cleaned, or something has been spilt or has leaked on the floor. Whatever the case is, if no sign has been put out to warn people of the spillage, there is a real chance someone might end up slipping over.
While most people won’t hurt themselves in a bad way following a slip, some will not be as lucky. For example, it’s incredibly easy to slip over and twist a knee, land on one hip or even to land awkwardly on your hand. When something like this happens, a nasty injury can occur which could even lead to broken bones.
Enjoying your health spa experience
Despite all this mention of slips, most health spa experiences are wonderful. Most people will have little to worry about with regard to accidents like this. However, if you’ve slipped in a health spa you do have a right to find out if you could be due any compensation.
